Animation Out of Box

Animation is generally misunderstood. On one side people assume it is a creative field and on the other side people assume it is all about learning the software. But the fundamentals of animation is storytelling, mathematics and physics. Animation is a language in which one can express. It is more about the artist than they brush, so is with the software. While kids learn the storytelling through animation, kids learn to apply the mathematics and physics involved in making a 3D animation. The course consists of total twelve classes and one field trip.

Foundation is very important for kids to build up their knowledge. Without that your kid will have struggle throughout school years and there after. I feel all kids around the world should get opportunities to learn from Mango education.

Santhi Sugumar
Parent, Coimbatore

Both my son and daughter enjoys attending the science and math classes conducted by mango education. It is more of active learning where the kids are more curious in knowing things. Obuli and Arumugam keeps the children more energetic and enthusiastic.
